Homestead is nestled between Biscayne National Park and Everglades National Park and therefore it is home to many nature preserves and parks. It is also considered Miami’s agricultural district, where many of our locally grown and sourced foods come from. What I didn’t know about Homestead before moving down here is that it is full of culture and charm. It is the place to farm hop–from “U-picks” and animal encounters–and the place to go when you need a little bit of extra fresh air without the hustle and bustle of the city.
Parks, Preserves, and Nature Centers
If you love nature, want to do a little bit of exploring, or maybe try something new, you will find what you’re looking for in one of the many parks that the City of Homestead has to offer.
Dining and Entertainment
In the mood for bayside dining after a trail ride? How about lunch at a quaint roadside shack? Tap into a little bit of culture and old town charm downtown before heading over for wine tastings.
Family Run Farms and Farm Stands
There’s nothing like picking up fresh produce to take home or having a fresh shake after a morning outdoors.
This is one part of Miami where mom and pop shops along with the ideas of “Shop Small” and “Support Local” really ring true. Although the acreage is greater in Homestead, the sense of community here is like to no other–farmers helping farmers and small businesses supporting each other.
